Buyers’ Remorse

Seems Paul Helmke is a sad panda because Obama is not enacting more gun controls. Well, Paul, don’t you remember when Obama was wooing us gun owners and he said as much? I have to admit, I did not believe him. Here I thought I was being duped but, it turns out, he was duping The Brady Campaign.

Third notes it’s a trend: Obviously, as is his SOP, that includes throwing all those minorities like gays and gun controllers under the bus when his promises become inconvenient.

Anyway, not the first group to be disappointed with Obama. Seems the gay rights folks are feeling duped as well.

    I don’t think that he is either a friend of gun owners or indifferent to the concerns of gay people, just that he has priorities. First and foremost, rewarding the people who got him elected with our tax dollars. Second, taking control of the automotive, banking, insurance, and health care businesses. Once he’s done that, say in two years or so, he will stop me and take away my gun on my way to my friends’ same-sex wedding.

    Does that make him Super Duper?

    On a more serious note, what did I call Barry back in August? The Rorschach Candidate.

    Seems a lot of people saw what they desperately wanted to see in a shapeless blob.

    The real story here is that the more Obama’s promises aren’t kept, the better off the country is.

    I wouldn’t call it buyer’s remorseóthat implies that the buyer regrets purchasing the item, and I somehow doubt that the gun-controllers and gay activists now think they should have voted for McCain/Palin.

    What this is is the people who voted for the candidate voicing their disapproval at certain things he’s done, which is how this whole thing is supposed to workónot everyone who voted for a candidate circling the wagons and defending everything the candidate does because of which party they belong to (which is by and large what we saw over the last 8 years, with maybe two exceptions).

    I voted for Obama knowing he was going to do things I disagreed with, and I planned on loudly opposing them when he did. That’s not buyer’s remorse at all. It’s just putting ideals before party.

    I understand that you never paid any real attention to blogs of people with political views differing from yours, since you more or less say as much with your “circling the wagons” comment, but you would have to be utterly blind to irony to not get a hearty belly laugh comparing the closing sentence to those above the ellipses…

    Isn’t it interesting that all through the election cycle they were busily telling us how Obama is not anti-gun.

    But now that he’s in office, the anti-gunners are disappointed that he’s not living up to his “promises”.

    He actually IS living up to what we were told during the campaign: he’s not pushing an anti-gun agenda…yet.

    But the anti-gunners knew that what was said during the campaign was BS…so what they’re lamenting is actually not that he’s reneging on promises, but that he’s not yet begun reneging on the ones made to gun owners as they are fully expecting him to do.

    He’s failing his base by actually living up to what was said during the campaign.

    How Ironic is that?

    I’m sorry Tam, I’m not following you. Either you misunderstood my comment or I’m misunderstanding yours.

    What I am saying is that people who voted for candidate X criticizing him when he does things they disagree with is good and healthy, and not an indication of people having second thoughts about voting for said candidate.

    Not sure how you’d know what blogs I read.
